On Tuesday I did the Pet Peeves meme as part of Berry’s weekly meme. I have one more to add it to the list. Meanwhile I’m showing off part 2 of the enormous update from ColdLogic. This jumper is so retro and chic, but stylish. I had to get out stylish sunglasses for this outfit.

Two more pet peeves

1) Review copy beggars. We all started off somewhere. I’ve been blogging since 2008 almost 5 years. When I started off I was a nobody. Hell I’m still a nobody. Back when I started, there weren’t review copy applications or event blogging applications. Hell, a shopping event happened maybe once or twice a year. You got free shit if you were friends with the store owner, otherwise you bought what you blogged. But back then there were fewer bloggers, fewer events, fewer stores, less pressure for stores to get their names out there. Bloggers are cheap marketing tools and the use of bloggers to market a product is a smart move. However, some people measure how good a blogger is by how many banners they have on their “sponsor” widget or how much of the credits is notated as being a review copy. Which leads to newbie and some oldie bloggers measuring their self worth as a blogger by how many review copies they receive and how many events they get to blog. Which then leads to review copy beggars and my next pet peeve:

2) Social climbers. Popular blogs mean more review copies Right? Befriending the popular people means popular blog Right? Knowing all the important people means free shit right? Befriending the event organizers means getting into all the events with review copies right?

WRONG only 3 items in this blog post are not review copies. You don’t need to sell your soul and/or whore yourself out for review copies or blog events. Be yourself, make friends and enemies, and blog for your own enjoyment.
